You can see PaperPort items (max files) and non-PaperPort items (items created using other applications, such as Microsoft Word) located anywhere on your computer. Page View displays a close-up of a single page. You can also start and use other applications directly from the Desktop View to view non-PaperPort items created in those applications.

VIEWING AN ITEM IN PAGE VIEW

The Desktop View and Page View are separate applications that you can run individually or at the same time. Page View displays a close-up view of one page so that it is readable on the screen.

In Page View, you can view PaperPort items and items created using other applications. You can also adjust and edit the quality, color, and other aspects of a PaperPort image by using the Image Editing toolbar. With the annotation tools, you can add comments, highlight or circle information, or add a picture to a PaperPort item.

To view a PaperPort item in Page View:

In Desktop View, double-click a PaperPort item or select a PaperPort item, and then click the Page button on the Command Bar. You can also double-click a PaperPort item in Windows Explorer to view it in Page View.

To view a non-PaperPort item in Page View:

In Desktop View, Shift-double-click a non-PaperPort item, or select a non-PaperPort item, and then click the Page button on the Command Bar.

Note: You can set a preference in Page View that lets you open multiple Page View windows at the same time. For more information about preferences, see the PaperPort User’s Guide and Help.

From the Desktop View, you can start a non-PaperPort item’s application and use it to view the item.

To view a non-PaperPort item in its application:

In Desktop View, double-click a non-PaperPort item. The application that created the item starts and the item appears.

CREATING STACKS

With PaperPort, you can electronically organize PaperPort items (including captured Web pages) into stacks in much the same way that you do with paper documents. A stack is a PaperPort item with multiple pages. You cannot stack non-PaperPort items. (However, you can easily convert a non-PaperPort item to PaperPort by right-clicking the item and choosing Duplicate as PaperPort Item.)

To create a stack:

The PaperPort software is designed to work with—or link to—other types of applications. To send items to other applications, you use the Link Bar.

Link Preferences from the Edit menu. For more information, see the

PaperPort User’s Guide and Help.

After an item is displayed in Desktop View, you can send it as a fax, or as an attachment to an e-mail message, by using the Link Bar. You do not need to print the item first; you can send it directly from PaperPort.

To fax an item from Desktop View:

1.Select the item to fax.
